Going green is the latest ‘cool’ thing. From the young to the old, using sustainable products and cutting done on emissions is a trend that is catching up pretty fast and is affecting consumer choices in every facet of life. So, why should hair removal be any different? While you might not realize this, conventional hair removal or shaving methods create a ton of waste.
Here are 5 simple alternatives that will help you stay hair-free and the planet garbage-free.
1) Electric embrace
Going electric is now the big eco-solution, which the automobile industry has embraced with glee and you, can do the same for hair removal s well. Using an electric shaver can cut down on water wastage, all those razors and a lot more. You can maybe even charge it up using some solar power, if you wish to go completely eco-friendly!
2) Wax to smoothness
How about a bit of hot wax replacing the razor for smooth and hair-free skin? Waxing is pretty easy to get used to, something that you can get done at home and with modern ‘wax strips’ you need not even worry about hot wax and the fussy mess it can make. And the final result that you get with waxing is always a lot better than the use of a razor.
3) Green shaving products
There are many shaving products and even razors, which use sustainable and recyclable materials and if you for some reason still wish to stick to a razor, then picking one of these helps immensely. You can look on both product labels or ask at your supermarket for something ‘green’.
Generally, Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light are the ones to make it on to a green list, but in the case of hair removal they definitely get the top spot. Permanent hair removal means saving up on a ton of waste and of course saves you both time and plenty of fuss in the long term. Laser and IPL Hair Removal treatments are a one-shot deal and far more energy-saving than razors, waxing or even electric alternatives.
